Synopsis

As the final tome in the three-part series depicting the off-color and unusual stories that highlighted Chester Wong’s uncharacteristic career as a detachment commander in the U.S. Army Special Forces, Yellow Green Beret: Volume III is a considerably more serious account almost devoid of the trademark goofy and comical stories that were speckled amongst the first two books. In many ways, Yellow Green Beret: Volume III is a true and honest revelation regarding the darkest sides of Chester Wong’s path and experiences as an unsure West Point cadet on his way becoming a leader in one of wartime America’s most elite and cutting edge counterterrorist forces. Truly the final pillar in the house called Wong, Yellow Green Beret: Volume III leaves no stone unturned in piecing together the coming-of-age journey of an unusual Asian-American young man.
